Trail Report January 15, 2019

Dad and mom were out grooming the trails today. They did all of the upper trails and 4&7 to RD 650. The snow down there and for most of 407 is slim so we do not want to over groom and make too many bare spots so they stopped where the did. For the amount of snow we have the trails are in surprisingly good condition.

Here are some photos Daria Fucci took on Sunday with Dave. read more

Trail Report January 14, 2019

I did get back out yesterday and groomed to the stone House and then opened the trail to the Groomer Shed. There were a few trees to cut but not too bad and the water spots are not bad because for the most part they were froze over. The snow is slim in those areas but it is very ridable. Dave and Daria were out clearing trees and branches yesterday and Brad Lathrop and his son, while riding on Saturday, did some clearing also. I also want to thank Kristy Stocker and company for trying to find me when mom and dad got concerned when I did not call when they thought I would have been at the highway garage by then. It was a slow go that day. read more

Trail Report January 13, 2019

Scott Ryan went out in the morning grooming and then I finished up all trails except the trail across from the groomer shed which I am doing this morning. The trails up high are good and they get slimmer down low. People are riding them and seem happy. Watch out for brush in some spots most wont bother you. We can still use a little more snow own low.

Snow totals January 10, 2019?

Dad said late yesterday afternoon there was 8″ at the groomer shed, and it was snowing last night so I expect that there is more this morning. I will be out with the Tucker on Saturday and Sunday if needed to open our trails. The snow is heavy on the trees so I expect there may be some tree cutting. I was wondering if any one had a day they could ride with me. It may be a long day so keep that in mind, unless you can have some one meet us at a road crossing and you can leave at that time. Give me a call if you can help. My #s are, work-775-3406 and cell is-779-5228. If any one wants to ride in the deep snow now is the time but watch out for open water and trees in the trail. If any one has an up to date total let us know! read more

Trail Report December 16, 2018

4&7 at Brewers Corner on opening day.

Opening day is finally here. Corridors 4&7 are all groomed as is the upper trails, the cross trail over to 407 then back to the Clemit Shelter. The rest was on the slim side so we did not touch them. It is not recomended to park at the Notch Parking lot because of the slim conditions. I did not open the gate there, but if you really want to park there you should be able to get around the gate. The rest of all of our gates are open. Higher elevation riding with caution is recomended!  read more

Trail Report December 12, 2018

Well after many days we have all of our trails free of trees. Dave Fucci spent 2 days with help from Scott Ballard and Mike Stewart. I had help the 3 days I was out with Barry Alger, Ed Raymond, and the last day with Mark Quesnel helping. All the signs are up from the Tin Shanty Road North on 4&7 and 407. I am looking to see if any one wants to go on Thursday to help put up the rest of the signs and I am going to groom the upper trails at least. Give me a call if you want to go, 775-3406 or 779-5228.  read more

Snow totals for November 27, 2018!

I would love to be out in the snow but I have to work. Here at the shop we have about 6 inches. I would like to hear what everyone else has! Photos are great also.

I just received an email from Matt at VAST. He said that we can start clearing trails and putting up signs with the Tucker starting Dec. 10th instead of the 14th.  We have to get past the muzzle loader season. That may make it a busy week after the wind and snow we have received. I will be looking for riders to help. Let me know if any one is up for some work! Remember we have not got to winter yet, that is 3+ weeks away. read more

Decking of the Jeffords Bridge

Dave and I went up to debrush the road so we could get the materials in. If you have a high clearance vehicle you can get there with that. Dave drove his Ford 550 in with half of the materials today and we will be driving our vehicles to the site tomorrow.  If any one wants to know the status of the gate please call me. Otherwise the smaller vehicles can get around the gate. I hope to see you there, I do not think that it will take too long to finish the project. read more

Bridge Decking Sunday August 26, 2016

We will be re decking the bridge on 407 near the gravel pit. We will be starting at 7:30 at the Mooonshine Lane gate this Sunday.  We hope to see you there! If any on has any questions please call me at 775-3406 or 779-5228. Here are some photos of how the bridge looks now. I’m having problems with getting the photos so I will show them when we get the project done.
